The Election Commission of India has sent a notice to Eros Now, directing the company to stop the online streaming of its web series titled Modi – Journey of a Common Man.
In a communication issued today, the Election Commission states that it received a complaint claiming that the web series on Prime Minister Narendra Modi was in violation of the Model Code of Conduct.
On viewing the same, it found,
“Whereas in view of the admitted facts and material available on record this web-series being an original web series on Shri Narendra Modi, Prime Minister and a political leader and a prospective candidate in the current General Elections to the Lok Sabha cannot be exhibited…”
Therefore, the Commission has directed Eros Now to stop the online streaming of the web series, and to remove all content related to it, until further orders.
Ever since its credibility was called into question before the Supreme Court, the Election Commission has been cracking down on violations of the Model Code of Conduct in place for the ongoing elections.
